I have had my computer for about 4 years now and no problems at all. I have added 1gb of ram and a GT8500 video card. I can run the games I like including: Counter Strike Source, Battlefield 2, and StarCraft 2. I have run other games which can be found here: Xfire Profile
When I run StarCraft 2 I can run it on high with mostly no problem but into the game I start getting lag and my game starts going slow. I put my game on low and I get little lag only when there are many units but I wanted no lag so my only option was to put my video card on the "Performance" option for applications. so I did and now I get little to nothing at all of lag and I play it easily. But I do not want to play with the lowest settings!
I installed Battlefield Bad Company 2 a while ago and I could run it on the lowest settings just because it would give me at least an opportunity to play. But I played the whole single player with lag and slow gameplay every minute that I played.
I don't know what to do? I want to play my games with ease, I saw a guys specs on youtube: Dudes Specs
His specifications are as close as mine except the MotherBoard, I know video card, HD, and so on is different...
I have not ran that game but on "Can You Run It" it says I need a new CPU... Yet this guy can run it. If I got a similar Mother Board would I be able to run this game and others?
I want your opinion on one of these two items I should get?
or 1GB of ram?
Can the CPU above be put on my computer?
What I think is that I just need a new processor? Your opinions?
